thanks!
ok so you just put elastic thread on the fabric and then sew over it to keep it in place? how do you know the amount of space to leave between each line? or does it not matter?

Yep, just cut the elastic to however tight you want it, plus a little bit extra to fold over itself. If you're using the thin round elastic, you don't want to catch the elastic in the sewing (except to secure the ends) - just zigzag over it. If you're using flat elastic, stretch it out evenly over the and zigzag directly onto it.

As for the space between lines, it's up to you really. I don't think it really makes much difference to anything. The pic looks like it's about 1-2cm.

Hope that helps!!
